CIAC Football 2021: Master list of Connecticut High School football previews

Below is the master list of every high school football team playing varsity in the 2021 CIAC high school football season, which kicks off Thursday, Sept. 9 with one game and then begins in earnest with 50 games on Friday.

Team previews are also divided up and displayed on an interactive map, which you can find here.

Teams are divided into their parent leagues and their league's divisions or tiers. These league divisions are current. The Central Connecticut Conference realigned into four new tiers.

The Pequot League realigned back into two divisions, with CREC Co-Op joining the Sassacus League. The ECC also realigned its three divisions. The FCIAC realigned into East and West divisions, with Thanksgiving Day rivals joining each other on the same side.

There were only minor changes in the SCC, with West Haven moving down to Tier II and Cheshire moving up to Tier I. The SWC realigned into one division for 2021. Here's a complete breakdown of everything new in Connecticut high school football this season.
